Bringing Race to the Table: Exploring Racism in the Pagan Community editors Crystal Blanton, Taylor Ellwood and Brandy Williams join KaliSara and RevKess for a conversation about this much needed book and conversation in the modern Pagan world. Adding to the conversation started, in part, with the books Shades of Faith and Shades of Ritual, Crystal, Taylor, and Brandy have put together a collection of articles and essays on the topics in a manner that helps the reader to understand some of the issues involved. With personal essays, academic essays, and responses from allies, the anthology brings racism in the Pagan world in a way that is easy to understand and address. RevKess and KaliSara have been looking foward to doing this show, this is a conversation that they both feel should be addressed.
From the book description: Each section of the anthology explores different facets of racism and how the Pagan community respond to it. Section 1: People of Color's experience with Racism shares candid stories of how people of color have experienced racism in both subtle and overt forms, as well as how they have handled it. Section 2 Historical/Mythological Racism focuses on how Racism has shown up in mythological and historical contexts, as well as how it continues to show up in counter cultures. The final section: Being an Ally focuses on sharing suggestions and ideas on how white people can be better allies to people of color and how to be more aware of racism in both the Pagan and mainstream communities.
